      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

      PLEASE READ - Reversing upgrade   02/23/2017

      We have found that this new upgrade is somewhat of a disaster.  We are finding lots of glitches in being able to post and administer the forum.  Additionally, there are new costs associated with the upgrade that we simply cannot afford.  As a result, we have decided to reverse course and go back to the previous version of our software.  Since this will involve restoring it from a backup, we will lose posts that have been added since January 30 or possibly even some before that.    If you started a topic during that time, we urge you to make backups of your posts and you will need to start the topics over again after the change.  You can simply paste the copies of your posts that you created at that point.    If you joined the forum this month, you will need to re-register since your membership will be lost along with the posts.  Since you have a concealed password, we cannot simply restore your membership for you.   We are going to backup as much as we can so that it will reduce inconvenience for our members.  Unfortunately we cannot back everything up since much will be incompatible with the old version of our software.  We apologize for the confusion and regret the need to do this even though it is not viable to continue with this version of the software.   We plan to begin the process tomorrow evening and, if it goes smoothly, we shouldn't be offline for very long.  However, since we have not done this before, we are not sure how smoothly it will go.  We ask your patience as we proceed.   EDIT: I have asked our hosting service to do the restore at 9 PM Central time and it looks like it will go forward at that time.  Please prepare whatever you need to prepare so that we can restore your topics when the forum is stable again.

It took me the better part of a day but I got rid of it....... I think and hope..

 

First thing I did was reinstall Messenger Plus to get the Unistall engine on board, then unistalled it. However, as you would guess it didn't get rid of the malware as it suggests it would..

 

I did everything in your FAQ, used all the programs, virus scanner, torjan scanner, XCleaner, Adware, Spybot (which I use regularly), ETC.. found and deleted files as the scanners suggested. That would work for a short time and then the browser Hijack would come back.. Used a reg cleaner...

 

I had to go into my startup, find and stop programs I thought were the problem. Turned out to be one called "That Clock" and another called Meow somthing...

 

I found the files on my computer and renamed them, this worked great.. until the next day when the hijacker sent files of another name, "Test Tray".. all executable files by the way.. I renamed and this once again cured my hijack temporarily.. Once again I ran all the virus, hijack, trojan etc programs as suggested in the faq including Reg Cleaners. Unfortunately this still left keys in my Registry.

 

Once I had done this I went into my registry and manually looked up and deleted every instance I could find of all the files that the hijacker had put on my computer. Then deleted the executables off the hard drive after looking to see if there was an unistall program (no way).

 

It's been three days since I was infected and so far so good, let's keep our fingers crossed...
